  • 900 g dry navy/white beans soaked overnight
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp prepared mustard
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper for flavour, not heat


  • Add all the ingredients to your slow cooker and mix well to get the tomato paste to combine. (You may combine the broth and tomato paste separately in a bowl fist if easier.)
  • Cook on low for 10-12 hours, or on high for 5 hours.
  • Enjoy!


Slow cookers vary greatly in heat, so keep an eye on your beans in the last hour or two of cooking to make sure they don't get dry. If they do, add a little water and mix well to get your beans a little more saucy again. Then taste for seasonings and adjust if necessary.
